    "Definitely delicious, tasty and warm. Like sldumont I used "ready to eat" beluga lentils, since "black" lentils are very difficult to find in the UK, and thus I skipped steps 1 and 2. Also our cumin seeds don't really "crackle" much, so I fried them for about 10 minutes and then gave up.

    "I'm afraid I cannot recommend this recipe to anyone as written, because it simply doesn't work. Sorry to the chef, but I wish I had not chosen this recipe, it was a disaster. Imagine the volume of a whole head of cauliflower, 2 sweet potatoes, a pepper and an onion. It's most of a medium-large saucepan. Now imagine trying to "s..."

    "Absolutely brilliant. Carrots and parsnips in the beef, both red wine and a stock pot to make the stock, potatoes with skins, huge pile of leeks, coriander and Herbes de Provence as herbs.

    You can also make a great vegetarian version by replacing the beef with 500g cooked Puy lentils or beluga lentils. They will tend to dry ou..."

    "This was excellent! It took me longer to prepare and cook than the recipe said (about half an hour each), I added a chilli pepper and thinly sliced carrots with the onions, broccoli with the other ingredients, and it came out crunchy, crisp and tasty. Will definitely make this again."

    "Made this yet again this evening, excellent! Everyone had seconds. I used the enchilada sauce from #109685. I added some vegetables for texture: green and red peppers, fennel, cauliflower, mushrooms, frozen sweetcorn and peas. I fried the onions, garlic and fennel first, then added the other vegetables, mushrooms and beans last. Thanks for the rec..."

    "Sorry BC, the ingredients are five star, but something is really wrong with the timing in this recipe. I don't know what kind of nuclear reactor Beautiful BC has in their kitchen, but mere mortals can't boil off 200ml of water in 6 minutes - more like 20! Chicken also doesn't brown, don't try to. Cook it to white, or add it later, about the same t..."

    "Simple and delicious, thanks! Also easy to adapt to more challenging diets. Something hot like chilli powder or seeds is really recommended!

    I found it hard to coat the beef strips with the flour and garlic mixture because they really stuck together. I suspect coating with dry flour might work better. Any ideas?"

    "Delicious and very well liked!

    Be very careful about how much water you add along with the stock. The mixture will need to be pretty dry to make a pie out of. I added a cup of stock and I spent the next hour reducing the the liquid back out again, so dinner was an hour late! I recommend just adding a stock cube instead of liquid stock.<br..."

    "If the tomatoes are already stewed, how can you "simmer until [they] start breaking down"? Are they already broken down (stewed) or not? Or am I not understanding what "stewed" means?"
